This is some reclaimed wood I use to make my walking canes with this wood I believed to be is Appeton it an Indonesian wood it is very hard much like Oak the pieces pictured come out from under stacking sticks we use in stacking lumber at the saw mill I work. I take them to my dads and we cut them into an octogan shape and the short pieces we put in his lath and make my handles.

Wish I had access to some woods like that.

Does the saw mill normally just scrap the wood used as cribbing material? What a great way to re use it making sticks. :thumbsu: :thumbsu:

The broken up stuff gets hauled of to the dump I'm over the mills clean up crew so I get to pick through it and get what I want also the fork lift drivers let me know when they pick up a new pack of stacking sticks and they save me those 2x2 pieces.
